Volunteering to help at Digswell Place Group RDA

Riding for the Disabled Association (“RDA”) has over 14,000 volunteers across the UK, with each one playing an important and fulfilling role in helping to enrich the lives of others.

At Digswell Place RDA we have about a hundred registered volunteers, including instructors and helpers. Our volunteers are from all walks of life and are all ages.

We offer riding sessions every day of the week, morning and afternoon during term time only so we can offer volunteers a variety of days and times.

CAN YOU SPARE A FEW HOURS EVERY WEEK DURING TERM TIME?

We are looking for active volunteers who would like to help with our disabled riders. Some knowledge of horses would be an advantage but not a necessity, we will give you all the training you need.

We just ask that you can come on a weekly basis during term time only, work with a smile and enjoy giving something back to the community.

Because of our insurance, volunteers must be over sixteen years old and will be required to complete a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.

If you are interested please contact Emmie  on 07469  173522 or email info@digswellplacerda.org.uk.
